We really enjoyed Cottentail Lodge. We loved the shower in the es suite but had one problem. Not the fault of the lodge. My wife is disabled and couldn't use the shower as she can't stand in showers. Thanks to the help from the staff at Whitecross Baywho solved the problem for us. I tried to buy a plastic stool but could buy one anywhere. I went to reception and mentioned it there , a young lifeguard was on duty and said he would see what he could do. Later on the gentleman who was on night duty brought us a plastic chair she was able to use in the shower. Many thanks to him. Peter Mitchell, Chatham

Thank you for your kind comments and rating your stay so highly, Peter. We were so pleased to hear you really enjoyed Cottontail - a beautifully designed lodge in a stunning location. We were not aware that you required a lodge with a bath although we were pleased to hear this was resolved and you went on to have a lovely holiday in the Lake District, an amazing and unforgettable place. The lodge has become very popular since joining our portfolio in April and has received excellent reviews for the high quality accommodation and super location. A wonderful choice for a relaxing break to the Lakes.

It was our first time in a lodge & our first holiday with our 1 year old. It was perfect for us. Lodge was lovely & clean had everything we needed and more. Bathrooms & kitchen were lovely. White cross was ideal also as it had an indoor swimming pool for when it rained. It was also very quiet while we were there. It is a walk into Ambleside which would not bother us except the walk is on a very busy main road with a narrow pavement. Would stay again Lisa Kelly, Southport

About White Cross Bay

White Cross Bay is located between Windermere & Ambleside on the shores of Lake Windermere. It is one of the most popular holiday parks in the very heart of the Lake District and the great location makes it a convenient base for a self catering stay in the area. 

The focal point is the lake front and marina with stunning views across to the surrounding fells and countryside. The park offers plenty to do with a large clubhouse which includes the bar, restaurant and leisure facilities (a £15 local charge applies to use the pool and gym).
